Part of my search (and Jeff was nice enough to point me to this page for help in this: https://archive.org/browse.php?collection=kennethudut&;field=subject ) - is identifying the Hapax Legomenon that might be significant.

But first, they need to be collected and keywords processed.

Then the upper/lowercase ones normalized so that thing like Science and science and ScIeNcE show up in the same place.

Then getting rid of the mistakes I made.

From there, I want to discover themes that go beyond the hashtags extracted. There's no really good 'automatic categorization" tools that I've found yet that can work with short texts or small amounts of keywords to find out overall themes. Our AI capabilities are still primitive to where they'll be eventually.

I got _some_ help from http://act-dl.base-search.net/ - it helped me identify some themes (not of the Vines but of other writings - I threw 9000+ posts I made through the years through it and it spit out likely themes which were very helpful.

But still, not quite there yet.

I don't know what my end goal is. I somewhat envy people with definite purpose and intent in mind like Noah. I'm just floundering along from one project to another, hoping to discern the "who am I?" question as best I can.

Maybe there's a book in me. Maybe not. I don't know. But I _do_ know I have lots of raw data that can be processed in different ways, seen from different views and _maybe_... just maybe, if I can identify hidden patterns and start pulling things together (like these videos) into proper accurate categories beyond vague large categories like Science or Psychology or Motivation... *maybe* some intent and purpose can be driven by the data.

And then, perhaps I'll have something mind-blowingly awesome to contribute that even Noah would approve of.

Or maybe not. But I'm grateful that IA is supportive of my unorthodox process and willing to put up with my "baby steps" here.
